Pauline Freiman
I forgot to connect my family names with a memorial that you posted. I found the memorial of Pauline's father:

Ignatz Freiman and Sophie Berliner

The list of the children match information that I had gotten from other sources, so I believe that these people are my 3x GGrandparents...

Read the next posting about Pauline, their daughter and my 2x GG, whom I am looking for...

Pauline Freiman
Pauline is my 2x great grandmother. and was born in 1848 in Germany.
* She emigrated to Connecticut, USA in the mid 1860's (perhaps after her mother's (Sophie Berliner) death in 1864).
* She married Theodore Tobias on July 7, 1867.
*They had 4 children and divorced on Jan 4, 1882.
*Divorce documents say that Pauline was in a relationship with a Robert Miller, also from "Prussia".
*After Pauline lost custody of her children in the divorce, she must have had some kind of nervous breakdown, causing her to be arrested on July 27, 1882 following her ex-husband's remarriage on July 13, 1882.

The family story is that she disappeared back to Germany. Whomever posted the burial information for her parents, Ignatz Freiman and Sophie Berliner, may have come across information about where Pauline is buried. Any evidence of Pauline Freeman or Freiman Tobias would be so very appreciated.

Thank you, Daria Lyons O'Connor

Thank you
I would just like to thank you for information on my Great Grandfather Pinkas Teicher. My Nan died in 1993 and took all her knowledge to her grave. Thanks to you I know now where his memorials are.

Where did you find the information regarding Moses taking the last name Frankfurter? He is my 3x great grandfather and I would appreciate any information you have regarding him. Thank you.

RE: Benjamin Benzion Horkheimer
Thanks for your help. I will keep looking for a monument at Mt. Wood Cemetery for Benjamin. I deleted my entry for Benjamin. That should resolve the relationship issue making him a half sibling of himself. I see that you entered names for the Eppingen Cemetery. Several of my family (the Baers) from Stebbach are buried there. I also have family from Eppingen (Mina Lehmann) buried there.

Best regards,

Linda Levine

RE: Benjamin Benzion Horkheimer
Hello Family Finder,

Thanks so much for your speedy reply. I did some more research and found on google an image of Benjamin's grave in Heppenlaufriedhof cemetery. Perhaps you also found it. There is some Hebrew that I cannot read. His birth date is correct and matches the date I found in the Freudental Familienbuch. His death date on the stone is 10 August 1862. This must be correct. I did not find a death certificate for him in Wheeling or see his monument stone in Mt. Wood Cemetery. I then found a privately published biography of Benjamin's youngest child, Louis Horkheimer. It was written by Pauline Lazaron, a daughter of Louis on the occasion of his 70th birthday. Pauline wrote it to her children and her sister's children. She wrote:
"Grandfather was born in the little German village of Freudenthal in Wurtemberg in 1861. His mother was Regina Baer and his father, Benjamin Horkheimer had been married to a Fraulein Laucheim. By the first marriage there were three children: Henry, Yetta and Morris. By the second there were Bernard, Julius, Nettie, Rose and Louis. Benjamin Horkheimer died at the age of forty eight."
Pauline's numbers do not add up.Benjamin must have been older than 48 when he died, but he must have died shortly after Louis was born assuming that the 1862 death date on his grave is correct. Pauline also got the name wrong for Benjamin's first wife. I wonder what drove him to suicide with such a large family of young children? Perhaps Pauline knew something about it but chose to write an upbeat story.Did you find his death certificate?

I am also curious about the name Benzion. I wonder where that came from?
Are you related to the family? My great great grandfather was Isaac Horkheimer, Benjamin's brother.

Kind regards,

Benjamin Benzion Horkheimer
Where did you get your information on the wives and family of Benjamin Benzion Horkheimer? I think these family members belong to another Benjamin Horkheimer who emigated to the US and is buried in Mt Wood Cemetery in Wheeling.
